The Data menu allows you to edit your data records and change the display layout of your collected data.

Data | Delete

The Data | Delete menu option deletes the currently selected record/s from your database.

Data | Cut

The Data | Cut menu option removes the currently selected record/s from the database and places it on the clipboard.

This option is normally used in conjunction with Data | Paste.

Data | Copy

The Data | Copy menu option copies the currently selected record/s in the database and places it on the clipboard overwriting the previous clipboard contents. Copied records are not deleted from the database.
